As I plan our next holiday shindig, I am chomping at the bit to get my favorite people in a room together and enjoy my favorite holiday sangria. I made my bi-weekly shopping trip to Sam’s Club and I couldn’t help but be enthralled into the Christmas spirit. I envisioned my friends gathered around our kitchen table with handfuls of deluxe roasted mixed nuts as the boozy bunch gripped onto their lemonade sangrias. Oohing and ahhing at my simple yet satisfying Christmas cocktail.
A holiday sangria is the perfect cocktail that will quickly become the focus of the entire party and this one just screams Christmas is here. To make this cocktail you only need two main ingredients and a garnish or two to give it that warm holiday feel. I used Simply Beverages® delicious Simply Lemonade® found in twin packs in the refrigerated section of my Sam’s Club and moscato. Just mix equal parts of the Simply Lemonade® and moscato into a glass and bam! I know you are practically foaming at the mouth to try this goodness.
Now it’s time for the garnishes. I used cranberries, Rosemary sprigs and granulated sugar. To give your garnishes that iced over snowy look. Rinse the Rosemary and cranberries. Then dust them in the granulated sugar. Doesn’t this rosemary sprig look like I just plucked it out of a snowy garden?
Add a handful of clean cranberries into your glass of Simply Lemonade® and moscato for an instant sangria. Add the dusted sugar cranberries to a wood stir stick and drop it and the dusted rosemary sprig to the glass.
Drink up! This is the perfect cozy cocktail to enjoy at your next holiday gathering. Add Member’s Mark Deluxe roasted mixed nuts to your holiday bar. I leave out ramekins to make it easy for guests to carry their favorite mix.
